As you pursue success in some areas, is the rest of your life simply an afterthought?

We may have many goals and plans. Alternatively, we might only have one or two. And, of course, we could well be one of those people who simply drifts through life, going with the flow. Success may follow our actions. Consequently, we feel at ease with life and the balance we achieve as success weaves itself through every aspect of our life. However, this is not the case for everyone. Some find no or limited success. Critically, there are those whose success feels out of balance. So, think about it. As you pursue success in some areas, is the rest of your life simply an afterthought?

Three metal darts laying on a dark wooden surface. Their tips are touching, all focussed on the same point.I’ve met people over the years who have focussed so much on their career that family and friends have fallen by the wayside. Indeed, some of those people have experienced poor mental and physical health as a result of their singlemindedness. On the other hand, I’ve worked with those who become obsessed with their health. Some become so obsessed it’s almost like an addiction. Everything else, therefore, takes a distant second place.

There is nothing wrong with being determined. It can and does lead to great results. It gets the job done. We have the satisfaction of making a plan and then making it happen. Similarly, going with the flow can lead us to all sorts of unexpected adventures, which may or may not be what we want.

A chaotic street packed with people, buildings of varying shapes, sizes and colours lining the street, with masses of cables forming a tangled web overhead.Being determined, being so focussed on one aspect life, can, though, lead us to neglect everything else. Consequently, we lose balance and perspective. If one area of life becomes all-consuming, how can we possibly give of ourselves to anything more?

One of the most effective tools for checking that balance is the wheel of life. Watch the video here, listen to the podcast here, and read the blog here. By quickly scoring your sense of satisfaction with each area you get a sense of where you are. If you’re being honest, and honesty is the key, the balance or imbalance will soon become apparent.

There is a peace and calmness about the picture.What you do next is up to you. If you know what to do to restore the balance, start now. If you don’t care or can’t be bothered, ask yourself why not. Alternatively, if you’re not sure how to change, book an initial consultation here, and then take the next step. You know that it makes sense, don’t you?
